The Streetsweeper: Political Unfriendly Shotgun of the Past [VIDEO]

The infamous Streetsweeper was a shotgun with a political target on it.

With its radically new cylinder loading and 12-shot capacity, it was too much for some politicians to deal with.

In 1994 it became a weapon for those only with special paperwork, and paying fees, to own.

The Streetsweeper and Striker shotguns were interesting designs never before seen until invented by Hilton Walker in 1983.

The 12-round fixed drum magazine had a larger capacity than standard tube-fed shotguns of the time. It was too radical in design and it got on the official black list of guns. It became a “Destructive Device” under the NFA laws in 1994.

This design has been made obsolete by better designs. It does, however, stand as a testament to the technical progression in modern shotguns.
